The Janome 2212 is a great sewing machine, especially for beginners and those who are looking for a less complicated machine. When we set out to find a sewing machine, we wanted to find one that met four criteria:
A.) It had to be affordable. We did not have several hundred dollars to invest in a sewing machine.
B.) We wanted it to be mechanical. Computerized machines are nice, but they tend to break down more often and are more complicated to use. A good mechanical machine with a metal body will last a lifetime; once the computer breaks down in a computerized machine, it's done for. (Some of them can be fixed, but it's cheaper to buy a new machine.)
C.) The machine had to be dependable.
D.) We wanted a machine that could be used for quilting and other projects that require several layers. Too many of the less-expensive machines are so cheaply made or so lightweight that they can't be used for any serious work.
The 2212 fit all of these criteria. We decided on it after an extensive search. We read all of the reviews for this and several other machines and then went to a local sewing center to try it out. We've had the machine for two weeks now and have used all of the different features. It works great. We've also made several big projects using this machine, so we know it works well. We finished an art bag for a cousin's birthday last night. Some of the stitches had to go through 10 layers, most of them heavyweight, and the machine didn't so much as hiccup.

I was worried about this being an inexpensive machine, but found it to be an excellent machine that is lightweight enough to take to classes. I wanted to buy two machines so I could leave them at my adult daughters' homes. I purchased one at first and used it for a month's worth of sewing (I sew a lot as I have a doll clothes business) and took it to several quilt classes. I have used it to repair my son-in-law's firefighter uniforms and other heavy things, too. I'm now ordering the second one for the other daughter's home. As a Pfaff and Elna user, I find this machine to be better than its price point.

I LOVE my new Janome 2212! It's inexpensive and simple to use, but does everything I need. It's of the same design as my old Kenmores. one of which lasted 60 years and the other is still being used by my daughter after 35 years. I look forward to many years of use from my Janome. Just What I Wanted!

I taught my 9 yr old granddaughter to sew on my 50 yr old Sears machine and wanted buy her a machine of her own. I distinctly wanted to avoid buying a machine made in China, so I did some research on affordable machines NOT made in China and came up with Janome, “Japan's oldest sewing machine company.” Whoopee! I read lots of reviews in which people mentioned the quality of a Japanese-built machine, so I went for the Model 2212, as it had great reviews across the board.
Imagine my surprise when on the back of my new machine I saw,”Made in Taiwan!” Well, better Taiwan than China, but a disappointment anyway.
About the machine, it is not as smooth or quiet as my 50 yr old (made in Japan) Sears machine, but it is much lighter and it does work well. I agree with all of the positive reviews as to the functionality of this machine. It will serve its purpose well. I just feel that Janome should mention on their own Web site that their machines are NOT made in Japan.

I purchased this machine because I wanted to teach myself to sew. I also purchased sewing for dummies. That was only a couple of weeks ago, and since then I made my wife a new top and myself a pair of 1672 boxers. Both turned out excellent. I love this machine, it is very easy to understand and use and at this point in my sewing level perfect for me. Thank you Janome for putting out a affordable machine.

I just got the Janome 2212. I am trying to learn how to sew on my own and will be taking some classes in April 2013. The Janome 2212 is so easy to understand and the machine is very smooth, quiet and powerful. I am very happy with my purchase of the Janome 2212 Sewing Machine.

Bought this to replace my 30 year old SInger, which was a workhorse. I like this Janome 2212. There are a few things though-the light switch is on the lower side, it should be in the front; the bobbin is a little hard to put in; the lift level is on the right and should be on the left side; machine does vibrate when you go too fast. I guess I am so used the things on my old Singer, it is just going to take a while to adjust. But overall, the bobbins wind up fast, the machine sews well. I am a basic sewer, so it seems to be fine for my needs and the price is very good. Look on retailmenot for coupon codes. I got 10% off and free shipping, but the bonus pack, which HSN does not offer.
